The Merry Shipwreck is a part of the Little Golden Book collection.
On peaceful days on his barge in New York Harbor, Captain Barnacle loves to spin salty yarns about his life on the Seven Seas and the shipwrecks he's been in. But his animal friends are sure there's no such thing as a shipwreck . . . until one fateful night when the barge gets loose . . . in a storm! A fire boat comes to the rescue, and all the animals enjoy their tour around the harbor with New York's Bravest! This rollicking tale was illustrated by Tibor Gergely, who also illustrated Scuffy the Tugboat.
